Almost Wright

Designed by a "disciple" of Frank Lloyd Wright, this 1965 home certainly has a Usonian flair. Using the master's vocabulary of rosewood, redwood, mahogany, and granite, the home has soaring spaces and loads of light. With a spacious 5,100 square feet, there are 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Located in Bedford, not far from Mt. Kisco village, the home is set on 4.5 acres and has rights (with the payment of an association fee) to a nearby 35 acre lake. At $25,462, the taxes are relatively hefty, but the asking price seems reasonable, even in this market. If memory serves, this listing was on the market last year and actually went to contract. Evidently, that didn't work out. (To find the home on the realtor's site, search by MLS #: 2907042.) What do you think? $1,395,000
